Greetings everyone, My wife and I (yes you read it right...she's just as excited about a new tv as I am!!!) are currently trying to choose a television for our new home, and we are having a ton of problems deciding. Here are some of the factors that we are taking into consideration: Budget @$3000 Viewing Distance: ~8ft Viewing habits: 35%/65% DVD/regular programming little to no gaming We also have DirecTV. FYI: Down here in good ole Memphis we pretty much have Best Buy, Sears, Circuit City, and smaller local stores. The closest Hifi Buys is in Nashville 3hrs away. I only mention this because I prefer to finance while having a solid return policy. Thanks for your help, and if I have forgotten anything please let me know.
